As a single parent, you’ve tried other dating apps, but at the first mention of your kids, you’re no longer interesting. Sound familiar?

That’s why we created Stir, a dating app with a focus on single parents.

It’s where you don’t have to apologize for having a crazy schedule.

It’s where having kids isn't a deal-breaker.

It’s where solo parents can meet, chat, and rediscover the fun in dating.

You’ll get to know potential matches through our questions on personality and values. As we learn what you like and don’t like, our algorithm will present new matches we think you’ll love.

With so much personality on each profile, Stir makes it easy for you to connect with local single moms and dads.

Here you can find your "every other weekend" partner or the person with whom you want to blend families. Download Stir now!

Need better screening

I really enjoy Stir, love the kind of people that are on here. Membership is a bit pricey, for me smoking is an absolute dealbreaker, so I don’t know why I cannot screen out profiles for things like that. They need to improve the users control over what they see. I spent several minutes reading and looking at pictures and then realize I missed the smoking thing again. Similar options should exist for drinking 420 etc.

And the parenting questions are confusing personally people, I see profiles with ladies in their late 40s saying they definitely want more kids. They way they ask you the questions and the options they give you are confusing and then what they say to other people your answer is not worded at all like what you selected. Needs work there as well.

Overall I like the app, enough that I got the membership even at this price, but 4 stars because of too much time looking at people I am not at all interested in, not really being able to trust what is says about whether someone wants kids (as in do they want to meet someone who has kids, do they want to adopt with someone, or do they want to give birth to children) I mean, the central theme in this app is we are people who have kids so how is it that did not get done more carefully? Love some of the people I am seeing on here, they just seem more real and human than other dating apps.

It’s missing vital info

Hi, I have been using this app and the interface is nice. It’s very close to match which I found easy to use. I feel as a single parent it’s missing some vital info. 1. You need to be able to put your religion. For most people with children that’s important to find someone with similar values and beliefs. 2. The ability to filter your preferences by religion and race. I myself am an equal opportunity employer but, not everyone is. 3. You should also be able to put your political beliefs. 4. You should be able to list how many kids you have and their ages. 5. Level of Education should also be included in the profile. Not sure if that needs to be in the filter option , but, race, religion, and political views should be. I’m surprised this app doesn’t inclue these things when Match does. Single Parents are way more picky about that stuff. We aren’t only searching for a potential partner for ourselves but a partner that will be a good example to our kids as well.

Great Premise but fails to deliver

I downloaded this app because I liked the idea that Ianyone I met would already know that I had children and to meet other single parents.

Herein lies the problems, if you navigate away from writing your profile or sending a message to someone, you lose it. Well you can message mutual matches for free, we can’t see who likes you to know if it’s a mutual match; so it’s basically a gamble if you happen to stumble across each other‘s profiles and like one another.
You can’t review profiles that you’ve liked, and can’t even review your mutual matches. I got a notification of him he’s full match, started to write had to stop, lost the message and now I can’t write to them anymore. Single parents are busy! We’re not always going to have time to write a profile in one sitting or send a message to somebody in one sitting. I understand that this is “a premium service“ $120 all at once for six months is not necessarily in everyone’s budget. Maybe offer at 7 or 14 day free trial to see if we want to pay for those features.
Overall I’m really frustrated and highly considering deleting.
